"We are a girl and a boy."
Translation:Nous sommes une fille et un garçon.
On est is used as "one would" or "one is" not "we are". For example "In France, one would speak French" is "En France on parlerait francais"
They are both etre conjunctions. Somme is used for nous, whereas sont is used for ils and elles conjugations.
"Nous sommes" means "we are". "Ils sont" means "they are" or "Elles sont" means, also, "they are". :D
I hope its not weird for me to ask, but how can you tell the difference between "une" and "un"? I thought it was the beginning vowel sound, but it said that was wrong, so I am confused.
Im not entirely sure what youre asking. If youre talking about the way they sound, une has a longer "u" sound and un has a shorter sound. Another difference between the two is the gender they represent. Une is for feminine words, and un is for masculine words. With fille, garcon, homme, and femme it is pretty easy to work out the correct gender. outside of these four, you just have to remember what gender a word is, as to wether to use une or un.
All nouns in French are gendered - either masculine or feminine, as are the articles they use → un for masculine nouns and une for feminine nouns. It is advisable to learn the article along with the noun and its meaning as you progress. You'll find life a lot easier if you do that.
The program is frustrating by not giving grammar rules when one makes mistakes
Une - feminine Un - masculine Look up the genders it makes a huge difference when you know those you're set:)
